This really a getaway from it all

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view. Kinda old but still great hot tub, just make sure you turn it up to your required temp at least 30 minutes before you want to use it. Comfy bed, I slept very well. No cell phone reception (for AT&T) which for me was a total PLUS PLUS but free wifi :). Oh and it has directTV with more than local stations which was good for some relaxing late night binge watching. And say hi to the local swan...I wanted to give him a bath ;) Wish I could've stayed longer.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay, especially the hot tub! Our team keeps our hot tubs, clean and ready to enjoy. Yes! You can adjust the temperature to you liking, too. Cell reception isn't very good, texting works best. This place also has a land line anyone can forward their cell phone so that no calls are missed. Come on and book your dates here! Enjoy that much deserved getaway that won't break the piggy bank.

This is an older mobile home with log siding. The view is very nice. Everything was provided well, towels dishes grille etc. It was clean. Good sized deck. Loved having a canoe on the dock. We had a nice weekend exploring Lake Watauga for the first time.

Not bad, but could've been better

  • 3 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed at Watauga Lake Bass Cabin for 5 nights. First of all, the cabin didn't have it's own dock - it was shared one with the neighbors which isn't immediately made clear before booking. It seems like someone is in the process of building one for the cabin. Secondly, the internet didn't work when we showed up. I called the maintenance guy (who is also the owner there), who showed up but didn't really seem to know what to do. I told him he should go check the wire that extended from our router to the neighbor's, but he didn't want to disturb them. We were eventually able to connect a bit to the neighbors cabin and have internet intermittently (which was also really slow). On the positive side, the cabin is located on the shore of the beautiful Watauga Lake and the view is breathtaking. The cabin was fairly clean, but far from excellent. The couch in the living room smelled of feet and BO. No dishwasher, either. Maybe I'm a bit picky, but this wasn't a cheap rental and for the money I would've expected some of these issues not to come up. Overall, I'd recommend this place just because of the location alone, but I'd expect these issues addressed before I'd stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments about the Bass Bungalow. Like this guest mentions this place does offer some breathtaking views. Glad that the owner could come by and get the wifi working for you. He is very attentive when guests call. There is a nice new large dock there with four boat slips. Guests get one boat slip, not all of them. Guests are welcome to swim from the dock and have two ladders bolted to each end of the dock to make getting in and out of the water easy. Yes, this place is located right on the shoreline with excellent views, you just can’t stay any closer to the water. Easy walk to the lake, great for elderly or folks who need to avoid steps. The couch is being replaced next week, lots of pets have stayed this year. Sorry for the pet odors. No dishwasher is advertised but every other kitchen appliance is there. This place is a small one bedroom so most guests don’t have many dishes and are welcome to bring paper plates if thats an issue. This place is less expensive than a room at the motel six. Anyone using a 3rd party billing website like this one should realize that the service fee paid online when they reserve has nothing to do with the rental. That fee isn’t given to the owner but is paid to this website for using their service and taxes go to the state. There is also a cleaning fee that goes to cleaners so that when guests check out, they do nothing just walk out the door. This place is one of the least expensive lake front, with a boat slip, canoe, hot tub and awesome views you’ll find. Be sure when making your online reservation you click on ‘See details’ beside the total cost so you see a break down of charges and know exactly what an owner is getting - which isn’t much. Hope all this information is helpful for anyone choosing to stay here. Most all the reviews are five stars, its a very popular place and loved by most.

Relaxing with great lake view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We took my father who has Alzheimer's to have a safe relaxing vacation to get away from it all. This was great. We rented a Pontoon Boat from Fish Springs Marina, spent time fishing and Tubing on this lovely lake. We liked the fact we could keep the boat right at our front door of the cabin. We enjoyed the Hot Tub! The cabin being lake front was amazing! We had evening fires in the fire pit! Although we did not catch any fish this was a great vacation. We will do this vacation again! I highly recommend this cabin!

Owner's Response: Wonderful, so glad you 'all enjoyed your stay. Fish Springs Marina does a real good job taking care of the guests. If you bring your boat the marina sells gas, maps and ice-cream. A great stop for any incidentals while on the water. If you don't own a boat, simply rent one. They're open 365 days a year / 24 hours a day. So there's always a convenient time to stop by. Take advantage of having your boat slip just steps from the back door. Evening pit-fires beside the water or just enjoying your hot tub which looks out over the water are great ways to create memories, relax and recharge. Thank you so much for sharing your very positive experience. Look forward to hearing from you one day soon. Your the guest all owners love to have - thanks for taking such good care of the place.
